Our employees embrace the concept of socialization for every resident and acknowledge that the healing process and long-term health stability relies on Whole Person Care. Our energetic activity staff supplements wellness by delivering opportunities for residents to maintain a fulfilled and pleasurable stay. From one-on-one interaction to group participation, our team strives to utilize tailored activities to meet the individualized needs of our residents. Our compassion is expressed both by how care is delivered by our staff, and how we organize and operate our building and programs.
The practice of having the same staff members consistently care for the same resident benefits both the individual and the caregivers. Residents are more comfortable with a familiar face and appreciate not having to repeat their needs to different people. Consistent caregivers are able to provide individualized care and establish bonds with residents.
Meals play an important role in residential living. Not only are they a means of nutrition, but also of socializing. That’s why we focus on the fine dining experience: tables are often prepared with tablecloths and place settings, and meals can be served rather than delivered on trays. Fruit and baked goods are enjoyed daily. In addition, residents enjoy dining area options, and our Resident Council also votes on one special meal a month. This attention to the environment creates a home-like atmosphere and, in turn, improves nutritional intake and quality of life.
Historical Photo Packages
The framed and captioned historic Braddock Heights black and white photo images displayed in our facility are enjoyed by all of our residents as they reminisce of times past, including our campus history as a former hotel in a resort community. In addition, our facility has other classic framed photos on display of historic figures and events, or movie stars and athletes. These photo packages give residents and guests a chance to converse with each other, and the home-like décor is charmingly nostalgic.
Laundering, Beauty/Barbershop Services & Activities Program
Laundering services are available to all residents. Our center also offers in-house beauty and barbershop services, which promote increased self-esteem and socialization. In addition, we have a daily activities calendar with opportunities for residents to engage in individualized activities and interactive community events.
